Make Soulwinning Your Lifestyle
Memorise: The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise. – Proverbs 11:30
Read: Luke 10:1-3 (KJV)
1 After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.
2 Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.
3 Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves.
Despite all your endeavours, if you are not actively winning souls, you are courting fruitlessness, and believe me, you don’t want to face the consequences of being fruitless, as stated in John 15:1-2:
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit.”
If you are wise, you will make soulwinning a priority in everything you do. When churches organize programmes with great crowds gathered and at the end of the day, there is no call for salvation, I just think “what a waste of time, effort and money.” What is the essence of doing anything at all in the Church if it will not ultimately lead more people to heaven? What is the essence of organizing concerts, doing jamboree and shouting to praise the Most High God if we do not prioritize His very heart beat – bringing lost souls back to His Kingdom?
If you are a leader in any capacity in the body of Christ, I am speaking to you now. Whatever you are planning to organize in the Church that will not ultimately win souls to God’s kingdom or help already won souls to stand more firmly for God is a complete waste of time.
If you are not bearing fruits, God Himself will take you away from the Vine. What a fearful thing it is if God Himself separates you from Jesus Christ!
In your secular activities too, you must use every opportunity to win souls. Imagine how many terrorists would have been won to Christ, imagine how many parents of wayward children would have trained their children on the right path, if we had been using every available opportunity to win souls.
Anytime I am invited for honorary awards anywhere around the world, as long as I have that microphone in my hand and a few seconds to talk, I will appreciate the giver of the award and remind them that Jesus is coming soon with His own reward. No matter where you are, no matter who you are, no matter what you do, make soulwinning your lifestyle.
How well do you use all platforms at your disposal to win souls into the Kingdom of God?
Thank You, Father, for the precious blood of Jesus that was shed at Calvary for the remission of my sin.
Thank You, Father, for committing into my hands, the ministry of reconciling men unto You.
Father, as a preacher of Your word, please, let my life and lifestyle, conform to Your Will and expectations, in Jesus name.
Father, as Your agent in this world, please, let my life and lifestyle, never bring reproach and shame to Your holy name, in Jesus name.
Father, let my light so shine before men, that they may see my good works, and glorify You, my Father, who is in heaven, in Jesus name.
Father, please, give me a generous heart; empower me to use all that You have endowed me with, financially and materially, for the furtherance and expansion of Your kingdom, in Jesus name.
